The Rev. Bradley Schmeling is the senior pastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in St. Paul, MN. Before coming to the Twin Cities in 2012, he was pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church in Atlanta, GA, for 12 years and before that served a church in Columbus, OH.

BIO:

At Gloria Dei, I have the gift of preaching and presiding, leading the staff and lay leadership in our many and varied ministries, keeping us connected with one another, and lifting up the vision that our gathered assembly so powerfully named in its mission statement. I'm always inspired by how God can work through any one of us, even with our challenges and hurts, including my own. I seek to be a gentle and humble servant of this assembly of saints.

I grew up in Ohio, attended Ohio University, received a graduate degree at Trinity Lutheran Seminary, and did doctoral work at Emory University in pastoral care and liturgical studies. I've served at Calvary Lutheran Church, Columbus, Ohio, the Office of the Chapel and Religious Life, Emory University, and St. John's Lutheran Church, Atlanta.

I live in Minneapolis and think both cities have great charm and am glad to call both home. My husband, Darin, also an ELCA pastor, serves as a chaplain in long-term senior care, and we love to spend time at home, cooking, savoring the outdoors, reading good books, taking walks and biking on all the great bike trails.

We wandered through neighborhoods in Belfast, which were still clearly divided between those historic and bitter rivals.
